Samlor in ThailandLearn Thai Language

Samlor (three-wheeled bikes) have been used in Thailand for over 60 years. The first samlor was used in Thailand in Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat) Province in 1933. They have evolved greatly during that time and continue to prove to be a very useful mode of transportation. Though motorcycle and taxis are becoming more common for quick trips and there’s still nothing because, we like a samlor for carrying a load or riding in a samlor is more comfort.
